New Additions to Fringe '09 Fall/Winter...

The Scarlett Piffl Brooch in bubblegum pink.

The Out-of-Print Cowl in taupe and cream.

The El Grande Cowl in solid cream.

This being the busiest time of year for Fringe, I seem to have less time for the build-up of designs in my mind and on paper, the pile of half-way finished items silently pleading for me to make them whole, and the new inspirations whispering in my ears, threatening to escape me before I can write them down. I need a clone or two, as well as at least 12 solid hours a day, 7 days a week to make all of my Fringe dreams come to fruition. In the meantime, here are three new pieces from my Fall/Winter Collection to check out...

I hope those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving had a wondrous, love-filled holiday...

Thank you for stopping in, darling dears...xo

As Seen on The Uniform Project...












As you probably already know, I’m a huge fan of The Uniform Project. I’ve written several posts about it. I was so moved by the idea behind this project, that I sent several Fringe items to them as donations, including this El Grande Cowl and a flower brooch. I’m so honored and truly thrilled to share with you Day 179, a.k.a. Lil' Red Riding Prude and Day 203, a.k.a. Cowl Play…Yay!

Sheena has raised over $30,000 for her very worthy cause. I can feel the love, can't you?

Thank you so much for stopping by, dear ones...xo

Poetry in Song ~ A Series...

I realize I am stating the obvious, but it just occurred to me (again) that songs are like poems...with music. There are so many beautiful, sad, romantic, inspiring, funny, sexy, edgy, confusing-but-makes-you-think songs. Sometimes when you pair it up with a stunning visual extension, it's like magic. The song becomes a mood transformer, a creative inspiration, a motivator...perhaps the video makes it more so.
I'd like to point out some that I feel are perfect examples of poetry in song. Beginning with Evanescence. Because this particular song was playing when the idea of poetry in song came to my mind




My Immortal

by Ben Moody

I'm so tired of being here, suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave, I wish that you would just leave
Your presence still lingers here and it won't leave me alone

These wounds won't seem to heal, this pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried, I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream, I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

You used to captivate me by your resonating light
Now, I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away all the sanity in me

These wounds won't seem to heal, this pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried, I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream, I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me, I've been alone all along

When you cried, I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream, I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me, me, me


~I wish I could write music. If I could, I'd make music for some of the old, beautifully written poems that move me deeply. I'd keep those songs to myself and they would be my own secret poetry in song, a private tribute to those exceptional poets of times gone by.

Famous Knitters, Part 2...

Betty knitting in a scene from Now, Voyager.

This looks like Betty knitting with a women who could have been a stand-in for her on the movie set, but that's just a guess on my part. I love Betty in that hat.


Betty and Ann Sheridan (another famous knitter) knitting on the set for The Man Who Came to Dinner which is a must-see film. I love that Betty is just in her stocking feet and has her legs crossed that way.

Betty Davis was a knitter and a crochet expert. It makes perfect sense to me that knitting and crocheting would be an excellent way to pass the time on a movie set. It would be calming, relaxing and make the endless hours of waiting pass in a pleasant way. I hope you enjoy these photos of the famous knitter, the amazing Betty Davis.

I'm so glad you stopped in...xo
